His plan: defeat DC, defend once against Rumble
Then move to HW
So Ronda is going to bite Holm's ear off when she gets outboxed again? lol. I'm wondering how long they will wait to make the rematch, maybe until ufc 200? I'd say its a good probability she isn't training with Edmond next year.
Also hoping they announce Jones/Cormier II soon. That rematch will do numbers as well.
Man December can't get hear fast enough! Gonna be a great month to be an MMA fan and then 195 on Jan 2. They even stacked the Fight Night card on Jan 17. Hard to believe they didn't make that one a PPV or at least a regular Fox card. Though I dont want to say it but the main and co-main fighters (Cruz and Pettis) history of injuries may have played a big part in them going the cautious approach.
Her footwork needs to improve dramatically, her boxing IMO just needs to improve to the point where she's not defenseless
Her footwork got her into all that trouble. She couldn't get in or out of range offensively and defensively. She never placed her outside foot outside of Holly's left foot. When she learns space and foot positioning it will open up every thing
On Holm's end, hopefully this will mean more exciting W's. Her first fight in the UFC was mediocre at best and her second fight was solid but unspectacular
Get Ronda a whole new camp with a coach who isn't bankrupt and who doesn't tell her she's doing a great job of using her face as a punching mit. Get her a buffer fight. Have one more go at Holm
